Conrail Terminal
Title:  Conrail Terminal
Description:  In the early Conrail days, power was still stationed at Charleston although by the mid 1980s that ended as the local switching quickly evaporated. A very poor quality b/w shot(and camera) but probably one of the earliest rail photos I took. Thirty years later, the buildings remain but all the trackage seen here is gone....it is now covered with asphalt.

New River Train Glory
Title:  New River Train Glory
Description:  Back in the heyday of the New River Train before it simply became a glorified Amtrak trip. The #765 puts on a skyward spectacle as she decelerates to a stop in Charleston. It is wonderful that this fine machine is running again a quarter century later for younger generations to see grace the rails

CSX 118
Title:  CSX 118
Description:  Photo run-by at Thurmond on 1989 New River Train. It is unfortunate that CSX didn't keep these units for use on its OCS train. Repainted in the scheme of a predecessor,it would have been a great PR coup much as the NS OCS is today.
